He's done ok in College because he's tall and quite agile but that's not going to save him in the Pros. He's got good hands and can rebound quite nicely, but he can't butter toast with his left and gets totally shutdown when defended. He makes offensive ugly moves like Wilt Chamberlain did in the 60s, when Wilt was able to rely on his uber height which Len will not be able to do. The scouts say he has a lot of potential but I just don't see it, and I also see a lack of heart, he's like Bargnani but without the offensive skill set and more injury prone.
I'm going to say this now because I'm guaranteed a late 1st rounder: Ben McLemore is the best player in the draft. If I'm the Cavs, I trade Waiters for a big man and have an Irving/McLemore backcourt.
Sorry Ian you're doing a great job running this league but I want to punch you for saying that. I'm so tired of every non cavs fan assuming McLemore is superior to Waiters. McLemore is a below average ball handler and lacks focus. He can shoot and is athletic but will struggle to score in the NBA. Waiters has proven to have elite all-around offensive ability and just needs to improve defensively. As a Cavs fan I would be very disappointed if we traded Waiters, who has shown he can be successful in the NBA, for another SG who still has a lot of questions surrounding him. I know the Cavs don't get a lot of media attention so aside from Kyrie most of you have not seen our other guys play. I'm hoping the Cavs pick between Porter, Noel, and Len.
